Ye Chen, "…"

It was really unheard of for SUN to actually resign. Everyone knew that he was a man who had been fired by President Yu for at least 365 times a year, yet hadn't been successfully fired for six years!

But he was actually ent.i.tled to resign. He was still a human, his patience had limits. He had been serving such a proud and harsh boss this whole time, so the earlier he left, the earlier his life would be spared.

Ye Chen didn't have pity on Old Yu at all. He even gloated over him a bit when he said, "Isn't this exactly what you wished for?"

Yu Xingzhe never expected that his 'heartwarming little cutie' would actually be so 'ruthless'. He went into rage the moment he stepped inside the house. "As I wished your s.h.i.t! How could he leave just like that, there are still so many things I have to do. Who will take over his duties now that he's gone?"

Ye Chen chuckled. "Hahaha, haven't you always been trying to fire him every single day?"

President Yu bit the bullet and said, "It's not the same. Do you think me firing him is the same as him resigning!?"

Ye Chen, "…" You're really going too far, Old Yu. I'm on SUN's side now.

Yu Xingzhe knew that what he said wasn't quite right, so he added, "You do know that I've always been joking, right? How could I even fire him? But now he resigned with no reason!"

Ye Chen understood that Yu Xingzhe was anxious, which was why he didn't bother with his extremely bad temper. He simply said, "Have you tried talking to him?"

Yu Xingzhe made a dejected face and said, "I immediately called him and even told him that I would give him more benefits…"

"What did he say?"

"He said that he didn't want anything, that he didn't want to be in vain anymore. He even returned the houses and cars I gave him…"

Ye Chen was shocked. "Why did he return them? Could it be that he had planned to resign since long ago?"

"No…" said Yu Xingzhe slowly. "I only know that he didn't transfer the ownership of the things I gave him. They were still under my name."

Ye Chen's eyes opened wide. "SUN is really amazing, how selfless of him…"

Ye Chen actually understood why this happened. It was just like him and Xiao Liu, they really trust each other. He also gave Xiao Liu houses and cars and so on, but he only signed for them, the other formalities were all for Xiao Liu to handle. Therefore, it was natural that Yu Xingzhe didn't know if SUN transferred the ownership of these things or not.

Yu Xingzhe was worried sick. "What should I do, what should I do now that SUN has left?"

Ye Chen helped Yu Xingzhe sort out his problem. "Have you ever thought about what the h.e.l.l you've been doing lately? About how you hurt him? Also, could you please change that temper of yours? SUN has a good temper and has always tolerated you for so many years already, yet all that you did was saying that you want to fire him and not giving a c.r.a.p if he got fired. Now that he is really gone, you come crying to me. You've never tasted the word 'serves you right', don't you?"

Yu Xingzhe panicked. "Who's crying!" He was all 'keeping up appearances to cover up his predicaments'. Well, this is the old fish we're talking about.

Ye Chen, "I'll give SUN a call."

Yu Xingzhe, "Sure, sure, sure, hurry up now."

Yu Xingzhe was so noisy that Gu Xi could only sleep lightly. In the end, he woke up because of the noise.

He appeared with a gloomy face and said, "Old salted fish, can you please go to h.e.l.l already."

President Yu was stupefied. "Why are you here?"

Gu Xi, "Why do you care?"

Yu Xingzhe didn't have any time to bicker with him. He anxiously waited for Ye Chen who was currently calling SUN.

Ye Chen raised his cellphone a bit to let Gu Xi see, indicating that he was currently making a call.

Gu Xi didn't say anything. He picked up the little kitten on the sofa and sat down while holding it.

The kitten arched its back on his palm and continued its sleep. Gu Xi poked it lightly, feeling that being a cat was truly the happiest.

Because he was asking on behalf of Yu Xingzhe, Ye Chen turned the speaker mode on. This way, SUN's voice could be heard through the entire room.

"Pardon me, Mr. Ye, I can't continue to do this job anymore."

Ye Chen asked, "Why? Is there anything you're not satisfied with? Yu Xingzhe really needs you."

Only SUN's soft chuckle could be heard. Then, he said helplessly, "He doesn't need me at all. Moreover, if I stay, I'll only bring sadness to him."

"How so?" Ye Chen still couldn't quite catch it.

Yu Xingzhe didn't understand, either. He p.r.i.c.ked up his ears, listening very attentively.

SUN finally said the load on his mind which he had kept inside his heart for years, "I've always liked A Zhe, it's the kind of like where I wanted to be his lover. I know that he had a secret crush on you back then, but I was willing to wait. It's been six years since then. He finally walked out of the past, but now he also has someone he liked and is together with that person…"

His voice sounded tired and agonized. That cryptically hoa.r.s.e voice seemed to travel from the speaker and spread over the entire room.

"I can't stay by his side anymore. I don't have any reason to stay. I wished for his happiness, but right now, I will only destroy his happiness."

Soon after, SUN hung up. The three best friends were left dumbfounded.

Ye Chen, "…"

Yu Xingzhe, "…"

Gu Xi glared at Yu Xingzhe like he was looking at a fool. "I've let you be c.o.c.ky, let you be as troublesome as you want. But you dare to drink even with that s.h.i.tty liquor tolerance of yours, did you know what kind of a drunk beast you've become back then? You even told the whole world that you liked me. Speak, you speak now!"

Yu Xingzhe was stupefied. "I didn't know that SUN is gay."

Gu Xi rolled his eyes. "Gay my s.h.i.t, it's his lousy luck to like you. You better be merciful and give him a way to make a living."

Yu Xingzhe had a perplexed face, his mind was in a complete mess. He never felt being so out of order like this for his whole life.

Ye Chen also sighed. "Er, Old Yu, you better not force SUN to work for you anymore. Since he has such reasons… It would be better to let him go."

Yu Xingzhe murmured, "No, he can't leave…"

He really couldn't imagine what would happen if SUN left. Impossible… Yu Xingzhe's pupils were finally back to focus, then he said confidently, "I'll find and bring him back!"

Gu Xi squinted his eyes. "How are you going to bring him back? Telling him that you also like him?"

Yu Xingzhe's body turned stiff in an instant.

Gu Xi said irritably, "Quiet down a bit, would you? Since you don't like him, don't be greedy. He has been treating you very nicely, that's such great benevolence!"

What Gu Xi said was reasonable. Yu Xingzhe understood, too, but… but…

Gu Xi pressed his temple, then got up while holding the little kitten and said, "I'm going to sleep."

He turned around and left. In the end, Yu Xingzhe didn't leave, either. He sat where he was as he got lost in thought.

What could Ye Chen do? All that he could do was to pour some tea and water for his fathers.

Ye Chen felt worried because of these two's conditions, but he felt quite bored just staying at home. Just then, his cellphone rang.

It was a message from Ren Jing. [How are things with Director Gu?]

Ye Chen might as well explain Gu Xi's story in full detail.

It didn't take long before the doorbell rang. Old salted fish who was still lost in thought didn't hear it at all.

Ye Chen immediately ran to the door and took a peek from the peephole. After confirming that it was Ren Jing, he hurriedly opened the door.

"You arrived really fast." said Ye Chen happily.

Ren Jing didn't say anything. The first thing he did was to hold Ye Chen's neck and kissed him for some while.

Ye Chen felt really embarra.s.sed. "Co… come in first."

When Ren Jing was still at the entrance, Ye Chen said in a low voice, "Old Yu is also here."

Ren Jing, "That's great. I brought enough ingredients, so I'll make a few more dishes."

"Sure." Ye Chen really felt that Ren Jing was simply really, really awesome!

Ren Jing greeted Yu Xingzhe and Yu Xingzhe also did so——Though Yu Xingzhe was probably not quite certain about who was there.

Ye Chen dragged Ren Jing to the kitchen. Ye Chen told Yu Xingzhe's story to Ren Jing as the two kept themselves busy with preparing the dishes.

Ren Jing's eyes softly brightened up.

Ye Chen let out a sigh and said, "SUN is really pitiful, he actually likes that fish."

Ren Jing said, "Yu Xingzhe probably likes SUN too, but he isn't aware of it."

Ye Chen, "…"

Ren Jing continued, "This is normal. He didn't cherish SUN even though he was always by his side. It wasn't until they parted that he felt that the other was indispensable."

Ye Chen quietly glanced at Old salted fish who 'had nothing left to live for', then said silently, "…That might be possible."

Ren Jing said, "Isn't that good? Love will find a way." The important thing was that his love rival would be together with someone else.

Ye Chen said, "Uh-huh, it'd be good if that's how it really is."

Ren Jing added, "But you better not tell him that. With President Yu's temperament, it'd be better to let him figure it out himself."

How to describe a tsundere? Hypocrisy was an essential attribute.

If Ye Chen really did tell Yu Xingzhe, this was what he might say: 'You probably like SUN, my dear.' But this baby certainly wouldn't admit it even if he was beaten to death.

Ye Chen responded upon understanding the situation, "I understand."

Ren Jing was very deft with cooking. It didn't take long for him to fill the entire dining table with dishes.

Ye Chen said, "I'll wake Gu Xi up."

Just then, the doorbell rang.

Ren Jing went to open the door.

Standing outside the door was Shen Jiaze, who looked at him with a face filled with shock.

The author has something to say: Ohohoho.

T/N: Brb crying over SUN.
